London, UK - 25 February 2013: The St Moritz Match Race, an official stage of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour, has been postponed to 2014 due to a lack of commercial funding for the event this year.

“We are very sad to have to make this decision,” said Beryl Pieper, President of the St. Moritz Match Race organising committee. “We sincerely hope to be back in 2014 with a new elite international event for our beautiful region of Engadin. The St. Moritz Match Race has become a favourite among the international fleet of champions competing on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour each year, both for the hospitality and the quality of the racing. This event allowed us to put St. Moritz and Engadin on the international sailing map.”

During its 10 years on the international sailing calendar, the St. Moritz Match Race has crowned some of greatest champions of sailing as ‘King of the Mountain’ including Ed Baird, Mathieu Richard, Torvar Mirsky, Adam Minoprio and Ian Williams. The event has also made it possible for some of the best Swiss match racing teams, including the Monnin brothers (3rd in 2007), to compete on the world stage.

“This is obviously disappointing news for the Tour” commented James Pleasance, Executive Director of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour. “The St Moritz Match Race has always been a popular event with sailors and guests, and we are working closely with the organisers to ensure the return of the event to the Tour next year.”
